Hey Big Paw people!  It's been years since I was on here, almost forgot about this forum.  We lost our Newfie Drake about 5 years ago to Cancer.  Got another Newfie from another breeder in Gilroy.  Guinness was a sweet, slobbery dude, 215 lbs. at his biggest!  Unfortunately he died suddenly in February, only 4 years old....

These early deaths for Newfs have really taken it's toll on us.  We decided to go with another breed, so we got an English Golden Retriever a few months ago.  Not a Big Paw Dog but we love him very much.  Will poke my head in here once in a while.

Haven't been here for a very long time. Lollie is now 8 and half years old. At the end of June she was diagnosed with lyme disease. She has finished her month long antibiotics. But she does not seem to be better. I have had her back to vet last week. He said, it is arthritis made worse by the LD. At the moment she is getting a dose of metacam every night, but even that does not seem to give her a lot relieve.

I just can't get my head around the fact that in a weeks time she went from doing zoomies in house to not going faster than a walk, very careful getting in the car, and can just barely get on the bed.

Anyone have any experience to share, or suggestions of other things. The vet wants her on a mobility diet and some supplements.

Does she need another round of antibiotics? or is it really all from lyme disease?

All thoughts and shares will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Skippy

Haven't been here for a very long time. So what happened to Bear? Did you get him or did you let him go to rescue?

I have missed seeing updates on everyone's Saints. We have had quite a bit happen in the past few years. Kids graduated, we now have an adorable 15 month old grandson, & have added another kitty to our mix. We did, however, lose our sweet boy Simon in November. He just laid down in his favorite place by the back porch and "went to sleep". Of course we all have grieved (we still are) and that includes our lady Heidi Belle. For the first couple of months she would go looking for him every morning when I let her out. It broke my heart every time I watched her do it. She has lessened that behavior but she has developed nervous itching since then and is "eating" herself raw. We had hoped it would go away, but it hasn't. She has raw patches on her butt & knees and she just won't leave them alone. We've tried new foods, new shampoos, everything...t he vet says it's simply nerves. Simon was the alpha dog and they grew up together. I know she misses him dearly. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
